triple8 is starting off with a positive reputation.
strut bolt torque value

I was looking over the instructions to install my Auto Spring 2" leveling kit. I noted that they call out the lower strut bolt torque to be 255 ftlbs. I checked my torque wrench and it only goes to 150 ftlbs.

Whole crap batman is this 255 value correct?

sorry brother i cant help you answer your question but i can say that after reading this post and looking at my on torque wrench wich maxes at 150ftlbs also. while i was at sears todaying looking for a 9\16 plug socket i looked at their torque wrenches all of their's also went to 150 ftlbs. but in my 97-02 haynes manual the lower control arm to frame bolts has a 197-241 ftlbs so i guess it can be so might have to get a torque wrench from a parts store maybe advance auto will rent one.

you know i think its crappy all these so called ford enginers in here wont help nobody with anything.
